The future expansion of Unity Park includes an iconic observation tower, built on one of the few pieces of "high ground," south of the Reedy River, adjacent to historic Mayberry Field and Meadowbrook Green. Designed by Endrestudio, the tower includes layers of wood screens arranged in a twisting form.
The tower will become an accessible, unique vantage point for Unity Park, offering visitors an elevated, panoramic view of the downtown skyline to the east and the Blue Ridge Mountains to the west. Emerging onto the observation deck, visitors will have unobstructed views of the baseball field, the confluence of the Swamp Rabbit Trail as well as the expanse of Unity Park and beyond.
Fundraising for the tower project is ongoing.
The tower will include an observation deck, providing visitors with a panoramic view of the city.
Circular stairs will provide gradual access to the top.
A plaza will provide a gathering place around the tower entrance.
The tower will be located between Mayberry Field and Meadowbrook Green.
